Dezeen and MINI World Tour: designers including Marcel Wanders, Yves Behar, Tom Dixon and Konstantin Grcic discuss the importance of Milan design week, which ended in the city yesterday, and whether it can retain its title as the world’s leading event.
Each April, the world’s leading designers descend on the city for the fair still regarded as the most important in the world. “I come to Milan every year,” says Yves Behar. “It’s the obligatory stop.”
“It’s a moment I can’t miss,” agrees Stephen Burks. “It’s the most important week in the design calendar.”
They are joined by hundreds of thousands of international visitors including students, journalists, buyers and younger designers trying to get their work noticed.
